Socializing a Puppy 3: Meeting People | Teacher’s Pet With Victoria Stilwell

Allowing your puppy to greet lots of different kinds of people allows your puppy to be confident and adapt to meeting people into adulthood It also shows that when they meet people good things happen to them, building up a positive association

Introduce your puppy to people of all different races, ages and the different sexes Puppies and dogs can get freaked out by the simplest things that we people take for granted, such as people in hats, people with beards, wearing sunglasses, back packs on their backs, carrying umbrellas — all kinds of things So, during the socialization process, have people wear different kinds of clothing, so the puppy adapts well to them If you don't socialize your puppy with people or other dogs or even other animals before 16 weeks of age, they can build up a fear So you really need to expose them in a pleasurable way, so as not to overwhelm them, but to give them good experiences, as much as you can before that socialization window is cut off

Because if your puppy has experience, a good experience, meeting these kind of people that means they'll be able to adapt very well as they grow into adults And that's how you socialize your puppy, positively I'm Victoria Stilwell for eHow Pets
